The Jester, or rather th3j35t3r, deems himself as a "hacktivist for good" and "obstructing the lines of communication for terrorists, sympathizers, fixers, facilitators, and other general bad guys." He also claims to be somewhere between 31 and 49 years of age and "an ex-soldier with a rather famous unit" that served two hours of duty as an airborne combat trooper in Afghanistan and other places.
As of late, the Jester has been on a mission to take down Anonymous and LulzSec. Monday he tweeted that the sites of both groups were knocked offline. There's even indication that he's gained access to their Twitter accounts.
"People talkin 2 @atopiary @lolspoon @anonymousabu R in fact talking 2 themselves," he tweeted. "Anyone tweeting from those accounts now is a standin."
"TANGOS DOWN - @lulzsec aka @atopiary + @lolspoon - having presented them their infos days ago - they decided they're no longer 'legion' #c2p," reads one tweet. "www.lulzsecurity.com - TANGOS DOWN - @lulzsec @lolspoon and @atopiary," reads another.
"www.anonyops.com - TANGO DOWN - in cohoots," he tweeted. "Days ago I handed @atopiary @lulzsec @lolspoon their asses. Today anonyops.com lulzsecurity.com hit."
One of The Jester's first public stunts involved a DoS attack against wikileaks.org back in 2010. He said that the site was harming U.S. troops by releasing diplomatic cables and footage from Afghanistan. Originally The Jester began his vigilante hacker crusade by taking down Muslim web sites that he claimed were recruiting terrorists. He also attacked the website of the Westboro Baptist Church back in February who caught the media's attention by picketing outside the funerals of fallen soldiers and its public stance against gays and Jews.

No honor amongst thieves, as they say.
Major hero and hacking demigod. Those of us in the security/White Hat Community look up to th3j3st3r. . .he has major cred. . . whoever he is. . .
Code name for a great American. It's purpose, give the 3lite pwnage to any random fail who seeks to pwn the world.
This is to any and all fellows who were children of the 80s.
Must be in dog hours?
I really don’t understand PayPal. It seems to operate as a government bureaucracy of some kind. I had an account with PP and changed my credit card. PP refused to accept a change in the card and insisted I had to use my old inactive number which, of course, no longer worked. SO I don’t use PayPal or ebay since most ebay sellers only accept PayPal.
PayPal is owned by eBay.
I once had a PayPal account or provisional account. Never used it.
